We wanted to share a post written by Ronnie Simpson describing his experience winning his division in the 2012 Singlehanded Transpac. He mentions using the DMK Box along with other equipment. From Simpson's post:

"On the topic of electronics, one thing that worked amazingly well was my DMK box from DMK Yacht Instruments. By wiring the box up to 12 volt power and the NMEA out port of my B&G computer, I had my GPS position and all of my instruments (Wind speed, angle, boat speed, depth, etc etc) wirelessly linked to my iPad. I had everything turned off most of the race, but by having all of my data linked to the iPad, it made it easy for me to navigate precisely, figure out perfect gybe angles and tactics, etc. Having the DMK box and full instruments turned a simple iPad into a full-on big boat style information center. This is a huge advantage on a small ocean racing boat."

According to Quantum Sails, Simpson worked with wounded-veteran non-profit Hope for the Warriors to raise money and awareness for teaching wounded veterans how to sail.
